Fuji Classic Chrome

The rain has been keeping us mostly indoors for the last few days, but between the much needed showers in California, I found some time to chase Suki around using Fuji’s new Classic Chrome setting on the X100T. Some of the results actually remind me of the last roll of Portra I ran through my […]

I took the night shot above on the […]
